Trey Lyles to Kentucky

On his birthday, Trey Lyles held a press conference and announced his commitment to Kentucky.

On ESPNU, Lyles announced with a big pause that he would be attending the University of Kentucky.

The five-star ranked forward by Rivals is the fourth commitment for Kentucky in 2014. He joins fellow five-star Karl Towns (Metuchen, NJ), four-star point guard Tyler Ulis (Chicago Heights, IL) and Devin Booker (Moss Point, MS).

Lyles expects to be a one-and-done player, and chose Kentucky "because of Coach [John] Cal's track record with players."

Booker to Kentucky; Looney to UCLA

Moss Point (MS) shooting guard Devin Booker announced today that he is playing his college basketball at the University of Kentucky.

Booker chose Kentucky over Michigan, Michigan State and Missouri.

Kentucky picks up its third recruit in the class of 2014. Booker joins Rivals five-star center Karl Towns of St. Joseph's (NJ) and point guard Tyler Ulis of Marian Catholic (IL).

The Wildcats could add another piece to the puzzle this evening. Five-star shooting guard James Blackmon is announcing his college decision, and Kentucky is in good position.

Andrew Wiggins Reclassifies to 2013

Rathan-Mayes to FSU

Xavier Rathan-Mayes keeps the family tradition alive. The 6-3 shooting guard from Canada followed in his fathers footsteps and will play his college basketball for Florida State.

He chose Florida State over UConn and Illinois, who were his other finalist.

Rivals four-star shooting guard is the first commit for head coach Leonard Hamilton in the 2013 class and a big one.

Rathan-Mayes is known for his big-time scoring ability. He adds plenty of scoring off the ball for Florida State and is a huge pickup for the Seminoles basketball program.

It should also be noted that Rathan-Mayes is the teammate of 2014 stud Andrew Wiggins, who Florida State is also pushing hard to acquire because of his family connection to the program and his obvious basketball talents. It should be interesting to see just how much this decision impacts Wiggins, who most believe favor Kentucky and Florida State.

Nonetheless, great scoring addition for Florida State, who picked up one of the best off-ball scoters available in the country.
